Compiler Error C2093

'variable1' : cannot be initialized using address of automatic variable 'variable2'

When compiling with /Za, the program tried to use the address of an automatic variable as an initializer.

The following sample generates C2093:

// C2093.c
// compile with: /Za /c
void func() {
   int li;   // an implicit auto variable
   int * s[]= { &li };   // C2093 address is not a constant

   // OK
   static int li2;
   int * s2[]= { &li2 };
